NAME ^

HTTP::Cookies::Microsoft - access to Microsoft cookies files

SYNOPSIS ^

 use LWP;
 use HTTP::Cookies::Microsoft;
 use Win32::TieRegistry(Delimiter => "/");
 my $cookies_dir = $Registry->
      {"CUser/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Explorer/Shell Folders/Cookies"};

 $cookie_jar = HTTP::Cookies::Microsoft->new(
                   file     => "$cookies_dir\\index.dat",
                   'delayload' => 1,
               );
 my $browser = LWP::UserAgent->new;
 $browser->cookie_jar( $cookie_jar );

DESCRIPTION ^

This is a subclass of HTTP::Cookies which loads Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.x and 6.x for Windows (MSIE) cookie files.

See the documentation for HTTP::Cookies.

METHODS ^

The following methods are provided:

$cookie_jar = HTTP::Cookies::Microsoft->new;

The constructor takes hash style parameters. In addition to the regular HTTP::Cookies parameters, HTTP::Cookies::Microsoft recognizes the following:

  delayload:       delay loading of cookie data until a request
                   is actually made. This results in faster
                   runtime unless you use most of the cookies
                   since only the domain's cookie data
                   is loaded on demand.

CAVEATS ^

Please note that the code DOESN'T support saving to the MSIE cookie file format.
